Thanks I had not considered porcelain tiles. I could go with a wood look tile, or go stone. It is an accent opportunity!
I have tiles on the stairs going down to my basement.I can't imagine tile being stable on stairs.
Nice.I have tiles on the stairs going down to my basement.
I had concerns about stability too. But I suppose if the substrate is sound, the tile will hold up. Just the same, I made sure the tile size was such that there would be a few grout lines in there. I was looking at one tile that was really beautiful, and could have gone across as one piece, but I didn't have the guts to put one big tile per tread. Basement has my shop, so I new I would have some heavy machinery going down those stairs.
So far, so good.

It's a licensed business based out of Canada so yes, a professional designed those stairs. Looks good to me.We have oak floors so we used red oak treads and risers. Those tiled stairs (Post 20) are terrible, there is no nosing. No nosing makes stairs uncomfortable to traverse and it leads to more falls. A professional actually created that accident waiting to happen?
US floors is a good product.Have these in a house where kids are coming in with wet feet. The subtle grain makes them not slippery. Have had no issue in the last 5 years at the beach house. Not cheap, but stable as hell and easy to install.
Those would not be code compliant in the US, and I'm surprised they are in Canada. The nosing projection (.75-1.25") is a code requirement for treads less than 11" deep.It's a licensed business based out of Canada so yes, a professional designed those stairs. Looks good to me.
